HiPP launches new infant formula packaging using Aptar’s Neo closure
HiPP's new infant formula packaging

Aptar Food + Beverage’s expertise is behind HiPP’s new infant formula packaging. Aptar’s solution features best-in-class technology with value-added benefits required by today’s parents and caregivers, including enhanced convenience and superior functionality.

HiPP, the largest processor of organic-biological raw materials worldwide and one of the global infant food market leaders, utilized Aptar’s breakthrough thinking to redesign their infant formula packaging for specific Asian markets, including China and Hong Kong. Aptar leveraged its expertise and history of innovation to develop a customized version of their Neo closure, to maximize parents’ experience when selecting and using HiPP infant formula.

Enhanced consumer experience

This new closure solution includes a tamper-evidence band to assure parents that the package was not opened before purchase. The wide finger-recess, the lid diameter of 127mm, and an easily accessible scoop allow parents the convenience and safety of one-handed dispensing. The Neo closure features an audible “click” to reassure parents the package is fully closed after use while also reducing the risk of contamination.

Safety is the number one priority for any caregiver purchasing and preparing infant formula. Like all other Aptar infant nutrition closures, HiPP’s customized Neo closure is manufactured in a high-care area, free of contamination to ensure maximum product hygiene and safety.

Aptar superior products and technology

The flexband design offers a low-application force on the production line that is ideal for mechanical or manual application and helps center the closure onto the can, whether metal or composite. The flexband helps protect the formula from insects and other possible contaminants. Several independent laboratories validate Aptar’s best-in-class technologies. HiPP’s customized version of Neo allows for maximum stackability, helping save space in transport and commercial and home storage. In addition, this solution is slightly taller than the standard Neo version to accommodate a wider range of measuring scoop sizes.

Aptar Food + Beverage leverages its knowledge and history of innovation to transform ideas into solutions that improve everyday life for people everywhere.

 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
